obama and i both care about poor and middle-class fami families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> worth noting, that's his first candidate-to-camera ad. this morning the obama campaign have another ad out hitting on the 47% comment. this is what it looks like. >> when mitt romney dismissed 47% of americans for not pulling their weight, he attacked millions of hard-working people making $25,000, $35,000 a year $40,000 a year. romney paid just 14% last year on over $13 million in income. >> this is the second ad earring in seven states. note, he launched his first attack in ohio and it's not an accident. for months the obama campaign has been hammering romney there on his personal wealth, and those hits appear to be working. a new poll working. the quinnipiac poll showing a ten-point gap. yesterday, showing romney down 8. ohio has been a problem for romney since the primaries when of all t

are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. helping lift families out of poverty and strengthening the middle class. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message, because we can't afford another four years like the last four years. >> we don't usually play whole ads but this one makes it very clear, karen, that this is the kind of ad that you see from candidates who are really in trouble and trying to reconnect to voters and he clearly knows that he has a problem on that connection, that personal connection. >> yes. if he hadn't entitled his book "no apologies" there might be an apology in that ad for those comments. but the reason that he has a problem with an ad like this in a place like ohio, is that it is a state that has, in fact, seen some econo

both obama to go down as they're going up. >> all right, mike. and apparently you've been deputized by "sports illustrated." you're here to reveal the new cover of "sports illustrated." >> what? >> there's a lot of good news, good buzz inside the beltway. it's on the cover of "sports illustrated" this week. they're calling washington/baltimore america's unlikely new sports capital. seth davis, lanny son is writing in "sports illustrated" about the beltway as the new sports super power. we have the washington nationals tied with the reds for the best team in baseball. we have great hope for the redskins with this quarterback, rg3 which "sports illustrated" compares him to president obama. >> i hope he's better than that. >> yeah. it's definitely a moment. i can tell you as a yankee fan, the orioles are frightening at this point. >> aren't they something? >> mike allen, thanks so much. >> have a good week. >> a point of personal privilege here. >> please. >> i want to hear about one story today and one story only. and i want to know what's going on in kansas. mika, do we have a kansas
, with the topic itself or the time. and the question to both of you is, president obama was criticized for his huge until that comment. over how much credit we deserve in america. that's what we want to discuss for the next eight or nine minutes. you cannot, i want to give each one minute and i encourage you to share ideas and talk about it. ms. laura ann mclane kuster, wel start with you. >> well, i absolutely believe that it is the private sector to create jobs. i have been in the private sector for the last 25 years and since the last campaign, i have created my own business that we have found strategy for nonprofit fundraising. but i believe that the government does create an environment for businesses to grow. that is what tax policy is all about. the tax breaks that congressman charlie bass has voted for her, it was encouraging the production of fossil fuels and energy. i believe that what we need to do is give incentives, such as growing the economy here at home and the incentive for shipping jobs overseas. i think we need to end the uncertainty and it flows from the deficit. we have to
